The session, hosted by the project manager and trainer, Ana Lua Ross, was attended by 20 teachers from the 3rd Cycle and Secondary Education from 10 schools in the municipality of Vila Franca de Xira. Despite the difficulties and restrictions currently experienced in the school context, they embraced the challenge for another year, with strong commitment and motivation.

The training is part of the National Strategy for Development Education, which aims to promote Global Citizenship in various contexts, including the School. The actions aim to train teachers to implement the project in their schools with a view to promoting active citizenship, integrating themes related to the SDGs into the school curriculum, focusing, this year, on SDG 16, in an interdisciplinary approach, based on the pedagogical resources provided by the project and, at the same time, sensitize its students to the promotion of leadership skills.

The other two actions planned will take place on October 31st and November 7th.
